I have found Jerry`s mandolin lessons really useful and am happy with the progress that I`m making so far. I`m also grateful that we`ve been able to continue having lessons during COVID-19 lockdown as I realise this is a difficult change to adapt to!

Fantastic teacher. Doesn`t just teach you out of a book, but really caters the lessons to you and where you need and would like to go as a musician.

I`ve been having lessons with Jerry on a weekly basis now for nearly 2 years. I wanted to learn theory and bass guitar, having had practically no previous knowledge on either. Now I`m the proud owner of an outstanding grade 5 certificate in Popular Music Theory and we`ve been working through playing the songs in the real book - learning both has developed my musicianship exactly how I wanted it to. I couldn`t be more thankful and I couldn`t recommend Jerry more. Thank you Jerry!

It has been clear to see that in just 3 weeks that both my children who are aged 10 and 12 have improved their guitar playing. Both children are highly motivated and now have real joy in playing and practicing the guitar in between lessons. Jerry is patient, calm, kind and is able to motivate. He has a genuine interest in making progress as well as ensuring that the lessons are fun. We feel we are fortunate to have such a great tutor.

I have found Jerry to be an excellent clarinet tutor. I am an adult learner and started from scratch (although I played cello as a child). I told Jerry in the beginning that I was not interested in exams only to play for my own enjoyment. Each week Jerry brings music exercises that stretch my abilities a little further. His sessions are fun and relaxed and yet challenging. He is incredibly patient and makes every effort to improve my technique offering good advise, answering my endless questions and suggesting practice exercises. I really look forward to my lessons. I feel I am improving rapidly and my enjoyment in playing increases every day as I become more competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Jerry to anyone wishing to learn clarinet or improve their playing.

Jerry has been so helpful and I really feel supported by his approach to teaching bass. Even from learning at a beginners level Jerry injects the lessons with an enthusiasm for music and all it`s different genres and interestingly illustrates the role of the bass within that. Thanks Jerry!

I have been working with Jerry for a number of months now and I am very pleased with my progress. His method is understated but gets tangible and consistent results. He is flexible, seeks feedback regularly and is very knowledgeable on a huge variety of music-related topics (and beyond). A pleasure to study with!

I thoroughly recommend Jerry. He is very laid back which was ideal for my daughter. In August she knew the semibreve as the one that looks like a doughnut. In November she passed her grade V Pop Music Theory with a distinction. Thanks Jerry.
